R.I.P. Andy Rourke

 This just in from Reybee Inc. I am very sad to learn of this news this morning. Like so many of you, I consider The Smiths one of the great bands of all time and Andy Rourke's bass playing was an essential element of the British group's signature sound...Robert Kinsler

MAY 19, 2023 (New York, NY) -- It is with deep sadness that we announce that Andy Rourke has passed away in the early hours today at age 59 in New York City at Memorial Sloan Kettering after a lengthy illness with pancreatic cancer. 

Andy will be remembered as a kind and beautiful soul by those who knew him and as a supremely gifted musician by music fans. 

We request privacy at this sad time.
